ConclusionBowel perforation in the elderly, presenting with cachexia and treatment-induced pancytopenia for advanced ovarian cancer, is often a harbinger of early death. Selected patients may benefit from a minimally invasive approach by an experienced gynecologic oncologist instead of vertical laparotomy, abdominal washout, diversion and the potential sequelae of an open abdomen.
The objective of this study was to verify the relationship between metachronous contralateral inguinal hernia (MCIH) and CPPV, and the risk factors of MCIH.MethodsChildren with unilateral inguinal hernia from three medical centers underwent either open or laparoscopic repairs. Clinical information, including demographics, morphological characteristics of CPPV, follow-up outcomes were collected.ResultsAmong 2942 patients (92.2%) who received open repair with successful follow-up, 185 (6.29%) developed MCIHs [125 (10.9%) on the right side and 60 (3.3%)] on the left including 156 (7.07%) younger than 3 years old and 29 (3.94%...
ConclusionsThe repair of the ventral hernia by Extraperitoneal route is an innovative approach of increasing popularity, which avoids the contact of the mesh with the intestines, thus avoiding the potential complications that this situation generates with good outcomes and at a lower cost.
ConclusionThe co-existence of Morgagni and Hiatal hernia is rare and the simultaneously laparoscopic repair of both hernias is safe and feasible.

Conclusion: In this series of 32 cases, laparoscopic cruroplasty with UBM graft reinforcement has been effective and durable at 12 months of followup. This technique may offer one satisfactory solution for large hiatal hernia repair concomitant with laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy that may achieve a durable repair with low GERD symptoms.

Abstract Hernias of pelvic floor are very rare condition, and herniations of ureter into sciatic foramen are extremely rare condition which is globally reported only by 32 cases. Clinical aspects of ureterosciatic hernias appeared variously according to the degree of hydronephrosis, inflammation and infection of kidney due to ureter obstruction. Herein, we report our experience of laparoscopic repair in a patient with ureterosciatic hernia combined urosepsis. PMID: 30882165 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsRecurrences following PH repair are high irrespective of the repair technique. More studies are necessary to identify PH risk factors and decide the appropriate perineal reconstruction.
This study examined patient-related outcome measures (PROMs) after repair of ventral primary or incisional hernias using Symbotex ™ composite mesh (SCM), a novel three-dimensional collagen-coated monofilament polyester textile.MethodsPre-operative, peri-operative, and post-operative data were obtained from the French “Club Hernie” registry with 12- and 24-month follow-up.ResultsOne-hundred consecutive patients (mean age 62.0 ± 13.7; 51% female) underwent repair of 105 hernias: primary (39/105, 37.1%, defect area 5.2 ± 5.6 cm2) and incisional (66/105, 62.9%, 31.9 ...
